Well Said has conquered almost all of his challengers this season, but if he's to win the $677,665 final of the Delvin Miller Adios at the Meadows Saturday he must overcome a tough new challenger - Post 9.

That was the result of Tuesday's draw for Adios post positions. Since The Meadows starts nine across, Well Said will start from the extreme outside. In his Adios elimination, he left from post five and set an all-age track record of 1:49.

Well Said has captured his division's only two million-dollar races and has banked more than $1.9 million. His trainer, Steve Elliott, expressed no special concern when informed of the draw.

"That's okay; it is what it is," Elliott said. "It's only a starting point; anyone could have drawn it. It won't change my strategy - I'm not driving."

The other elimination winners, If I Can Dream and Mr Wiggles, drew posts two and seven, respectively. The field includes two wagering entries - a three-horse entry (Schoolkids, Straight Shooting and If I Can Dream) sent out by trainer Tracy Brainard. George Teague, Jr. sends out the two-horse entry consisting of Mr Wiggles and Chasin Racin.

The Adios is the centerpiece of a powerhouse card that also includes the $225,000 Quinton Patterson for three-year-old pacing fillies, the $100,000 Gov. Lawrence for freshman colt pacers, the inaugural $100,000 Catherine Baker Knoll for two-year-old pacing fillies and the $50,000 Adios consolation.

Here’s the field for the Adios in post position order:

1. Vintage Master
2. If I Can Dream
3. Ideal Danny
4. Keep It Real
5. Chasin Racin
6. Schoolkids
7. Mr Wiggles
8. Straight Shooting
9. Well Said
